“Mindhunter” is an intense psychological thriller-drama. So maybe folks were too scared to vote this acclaimed show higher up the list (wink). While “Mindhunter” comes in at no. 8 with only 17 percent of the vote against “You” in round one, the show is still a hit. The show about FBI agents delving into the minds of serial killers holds a fresh rating of 97 percent and an audience score of 95 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). So if you love a good psychological thriller-drama, this show is definitely for you.

“Narcos” is such a hit that there’s two shows in the franchise so far—”Narcos” and “Narcos Mexico.” The original “Narcos” holds a fresh rating of 89 percent and an audience score of 94 on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). The newest addition “Mexico” holds a fresh rating of 88 percent and an audience score of 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (also at the time of publication). So the critics and viewers alike love both series about notorious drug kingpins. Coming in at no. 7 after garnering 35 percent of the vote against “Ozark” in the first round, doesn’t make the love the franchise any less true. So check out both series.

6. ‘The Crown’

While “Narcos” pulled in a higher percentage against “Ozark” in the first round, “The Crown” pulled in more votes overall, with 32 percent in a face-off against “Elite.” Still, it wasn’t enough to get the historic drama about Queen Elizabeth II’s reign to reign supreme in this bracket. Yet, the praised series is worth a watch, according to Rotten Tomatoes, with a 89 percent fresh rating and audience score of 90 percent (at the time of publication).

5. ’13 Reason Why’

This controversial teen drama brought in quite a few votes in a tight race against “The Society.” Still, it wasn’t enough to progress to the semi-final with 48 percent of the vote. While the show has a rotten rating and a low audience score on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication), many fans have defended the drama’s depictions of suicide, date rape and other teenage issues. They claim the show highlights these issues, not exploit them. Hence, the show’s continued popularity.

4. ‘Ozark’

“Ozark” did well in the first round, only to significantly lose against “You” in the semi-final, with only 19 percent of the vote. Still, the series holds a fresh rating of 81 percent and an audience score of 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). The show about family’s trials and tribulations of being surrounded by dirty money is beloved. If you love crime drama then this show starring Laura Linney and Jason Bateman is for you.

3. ‘The Society’

“The Society” was in another tight race in the semi-final, but this time, the drama-mystery show couldn’t defeat “Elite.” The show about teenagers starting their own society once all the adults disappear gained 45 percent of the vote against “Elite.” Though it wasn’t enough to make it into the final, “The Society” is clearly worth checking out, according to Rotten Tomatoes, with a fresh rating of 86 percent and an audience score of 75 percent (at the time of publication).

2. ‘Elite’

“Elite” is clearly “Elite.” Coming in at no. 2, this show has all the right stuff to make a great teen drama. Though, the Spanish drama lost in the end. The show’s strong and mobilized fanbase, and its Rotten Tomatoes fresh rating of 97 percent and audience score of 88 percent (at the time of publication), is all the reason you need to check out this indicative show.

1. ‘You’

And now the show everyone is obsessed with—”You” is no. 1 on our recommendations list. You all voted and “You” crushed the competition round after round. It would be the intense psychological thriller-drama about an obsessed stalker everyone is obsessed with, right? “You” holds a fresh rating of 90 percent and an audience score of 81 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). As Tylters voted “You” no. 1, you should check it out in case you haven’t hopped on the bandwagon yet.
